About the employer

We are one of North West London’s best childcare providers, caring for children from the age of three months to five years (pre-school). At Twisty Tails Nursery, we understand that your child’s safety and development are of paramount importance, not only to you but also to us. Our aim is to provide your little one with all the key attributes and necessities required to help him/her strive in both personal and academic situations. Our warm and welcoming nursery offers an extensive range of activates that will stimulate your child’s mind and encouraging them to use their imaginations. We recognise that each child is unique and they learn in different ways. We therefore tailor activities based on their needs rather than have a unitary structure this enables each child to grow in a way that is best for them. Our friendly team use innovative teaching methods to ensure each child progresses to their maximum potential. Just as learning is important so is nutrition! We encourage healthy eating and have incorporated a strategy that ensures the children are given fresh fruits and vegetables (with their meals) as a part of their five-a-day to maintain a balanced diet.
